A drive through the pleasant Cheshire countryside brings us to Chester for the day. Explore the unique 'Rows'of two-tiered shops, take a stroll around the City Walls, meander down to the River Dee and maybe enjoy lunch in a riverside pub, or just relax and watch the world go by.

Day 3

Leaving after breakfast we travel around the Wirral coast via Hoylake, with its famous golf courses, and through the tunnel into Liverpool. We spend the morning here and you have time to explore this fascinating city. Whilst here we include a boat trip on the River Mersey. This afternoon we travel through the Mersey Tunnel to Port Sunlight. Here we visit Sunlight Vision and enjoy a guided tour of Port Sunlight Village, built by William Hesketh Lever for his factory workers and named after his famous Sunlight soap. This is a superb example of how life used to be.

Day 4

Today's excursion takes us through some lovely Welsh scenery, including the spectacular Horseshoe Pass, to the Dee Valley where we join the Rheilfford Llangollen Railway for a journey on a nostalgic steam train and also take a ride on the 'Stream in the Sky'- the Llangollen Canal - gliding gently along over the country's biggest navigable viaduct.
